“It is never too late to be wise.”
― Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe
That famous quote from Robinson Crusoe is a poignant in life, but it becomes a little less realistic in Ignacy Trzewiczek’s boardgame Robinson Crusoe: Adventure on the Cursed Island when you only have twelve turns to keep yourself from starving to death. This is a game that requires you to make wise decisions early on, and punishes you dearly for making incorrect ones. It’s a game that lavishes you with a variety of options, but teases you with the inability to select more than a meagre handful of them. Practicing your wisdom a little too late is how you die on this breathtaking deserted island.
